Mark your calendars for the weekend ofDecember 6-8.On Friday evening at the Blue Mountain Trail Lodgethere will be a children's holiday party complete witha visit from Santa Claus. For the adults, a little holidaycheer.Saturday is the date for the Cross Country Relay, thisis a really fantasic fun event. For the men. it is a four-man team running 3 miles each, the women will runthree-women teams. The course is challenging. Allparticipants will enjoy the pancake breakfast followingthe event.Later on that evening is the Taconic Holiday Partyfor adults, lots of food and beverages, music anddancing. Some folks even plan on spending the night atthe modest accomodations at the Trail Lodge (cots).On Sunday, it is the Couples' Relay, one man/onewoman each running 5K on the roads and paths in BlueMountain. For the second day in a row we will have apancake breakfast. Unusual awards are the usual here;Everyone looks forward to the chance to compete for ahome made cheesecake and a bottle of champagne.People who spend too much time thinking about training and feel that they aren't getting enough enjoymentout of their running should get their butts out to BlueMountain in December.Oh yes, there may be a marathon run on Sunday,December 8, if the race director ever gets his stuff (sic)together. The idea is that it will be an extended "pumphouse" run, with the same kind of support, i.e. waterstops every 3-5 miles. The course will begin atBaldwin Place (TRRC World Headquarters) and end atBlue Mountain, the object is to get there before thepancakes are gone.</p><p>This is my last column as president -1 want tothank all of the officers and race directors for theirselfless efforts over the last two years, and I particularlywant to thank the volunteers who came out time andtime again to make all of our events as successful asanyone could imagine.</p><p>Lee is going to need that same wonderful support during her presidency and I hope that we will seesome new faces coming forward to assist her.</p><p>Thanks,E d</p></li><li><p>laconic Road Runners Club 1996 Race ScheduleThe following schedule is offered as a guideline.
